Epiphany Closes

Epiphany ends at a high place on a high note and with a temptation to camp out. But the valley of vision calls-- the 40 days of Lent are upon us. So within the span of a few short days we move from "on earth as it is in heaven" with an inbreaking vision of glorified humanity in Christ down to the dust of the earth. . . . . . as in from dust you have come and to dust you shall return. Humus, or soil. See the connection to humility. Now think of the ONE who didn't consider equality with God something to be grasped, but HUMBLED himself and became obedient. . . . even to death on a cross. . . . . therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name.

so this HUMBLE ONE, took the disciples up to a "high mountain" where he was TRANSFIGURED before them. The HUMAN one viewed in his DIVINE status. EPIPHANY. Only visions like this can sustain us in the WAY OF THE CROSS.
